Ok, I’ll only mention the ones I think it needs their animations either changed or tuned up on speed, I wanna know if you guys agree.
1h Sword, its overall good, the 4th light attack animation could use the same speed as the first 3 attacks, because its light and has no hyperarmor.
1h Axe, same as 1h sword about the 4th light attack, with the addition of the 1 first light attack getting tuned up aswell, its too slow for a light opening attack, only the heavy one is reliable in most situations.
1h Mace, I dont know about you fellow exiles, but does any1 use Maces for real? I mean, they’re nice in pair with a throwing axe or shield, and thats it, because its animations alone makes it the worst weapon to use, light attacks have an ok speed, but they have very short range and cluncky hithox, I feel like they should be more wide open like whirlwind attacks. The heavy ones are nice, but they need to be faster to be effective, mainly the opnener.
2h Sword, the 1st light attack is a bit weird because the toon rise the sword up with one hand, and its slow, I know managing a big weapon has no room for agile moves, but a fighter choosing a big 2 hand sword would use it the most firmly possible, either the first attack could be replaced by a new one, or just make it faster because for an opening light attack is kinda slow compared with the others of the light chain. Heavy ones are ok.
2h Hammer, the light chain is just AWESOME, it has a good speed and very nice animations, very balanced overall, good range too. Now the heavy, hummm, ok, its Hammer, so it shouldnt be fast because its the heaviest weapon, I can buy that, but thaaaaaat slow? Its only used for PvE, no PvP fights would ever use that heavy attacks, not because they’re not good or nice, but because its veeeery slow to chain it with one another. I remember Oscar explaining about the idea of faint attack, and thats nice, but again, its slow, the heavy chain could use a bit more speed to be useful outside PvE.
Javelins, while cool on design, they are too static, stuck, non agressive, the light chain could use side fast attacks similar to the spear, and having a heavy chain based on stabs with a jumping attack on the finisher or even the opener.
And thats it, I only created this thread so we can discuss about the weapons because I beleive there could be more variety in combat and bring them to life. We are so used to the Spear vs Spear mainly, that we don’t even remember there are other types of weapons that could offer different playstyle, and there are so good skins from them and they could have some use on the field instead of end up becoming just a wall decoration.
What you guys think?
